Let's Pretend...

OK, I'm gonna pretend that this card came out just the way I imagined it would, and because you are all my bestest friends, you're gonna make believe, too.

I can't really say how I thought it would look, but I can say that it is a (very) loose adaptation of Jamie's Bella Sketch Challenge, which really inspired me today.

I will also say that in my original plan, among other things, that heart in the corner was going to be a ghost heart, which I had airbrushed with a pink Copic marker. The heart looked really cool. I was very excited. And then I messed it all up trying to glue it onto the card (with the wrong adhesive). And when I tried to clean it up, I took blotches of the ink off. And when I tried to re-spray it, I realized I was completely out of canned air. So I tried to color it directly with the marker (like I knew I shouldn't, which is why I airbrushed it in the first place!) and completely screwed it up. So I used the messed up ghost heart to trace the shape onto the paper, and outlined it with a marker to make it stand out a little.

Is it any wonder that my mojo has gone awanderin'?

Anyhow, I have decided to embrace the card. I will love the card as if it were exactly what I planned. That is my story, and I'm stickin' to it!

What I used:
Stamps: Out on a Limb, Green Thumb, Heart Prints (all PaperTrey Ink)
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, PTI Raspberry Fizz and Ripe Avocado
Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, PTI white, Basic Grey Eva collection
